Vacuum Elevator - PVE 30"

The PVE 30″ is the smallest home elevator in the world, but still offers ample room for a single passenger. The PVE30 elevator has 350lb (159kg) lift capacity and is capable of being configured to as many as four stops within 35 ft (10.5m) of rise. The PVE 30″ is the ultimate space-saving mobility solution for a residential elevator. Particularly for retrofits to older homes that tend to be smaller offer less storage space. No shaft or machine room, means more space for you in your home.
